Sandra (Marion Cotillard) loses her job, but she can get it back if her co-workers at the factory will choose for her to return rather than for a bonus payment to themselves. She has one weekend to
convince her 16 teammates to vote in her favour. The story
envelopes us in Sandra’s world, through long takes and hand-held shots, putting a human face on Europe’s economic crisis. Despite the high stakes and mounting tension, we’re reminded that — whether it’s enjoying an ice cream in the park, or the simple act of listening to others — there’s much that can be savoured in two days and one night.
